Engage with one another, develop knowledge and skills, share expertise, and contribute to our community.

The Spring 2024 CBODN Mentoring Program has closed for registration. Please check back in late summer for information about the fall series! 

About the Program: 

  • The purpose of the program is to provide a mentoring experience for CBODN members and non-members that is enriching and educational for all involved.  
  • Group mentoring will involve 3-5 people working together with a mentor on topics of interest to the mentees. 
  • The mentees’ role is to contribute to the questions and content that the group will cover. 
  • The mentor’s role is to hold space for the group’s conversation, ensuring the experience is inclusive and allows for active participation by all. 
  • Each group will aim to meet every other week, 5 times over 10 weeks.
  • Mentors and mentees will be paired at an orientation session based on common interests and days/times that work best. 
  • Topics will be generated by the group’s participants, including offers to share with the group and requests for knowledge or information. Every individual participating in a group will serve as a source of knowledge and support to the group as a whole, and not just the person in the mentor role. 
  • Each group will create its own contract around confidentiality and sharing of each other’s contact information.
  • The program will conclude with a report out meeting to share feedback that helps improve future rounds of this work! 


  • Members - no additional fee
  • Non-members - $60
